LaVar Ball is beginning to supersede the fame of his son, UCLA basketball star Lonzo Ball.
Outspoken and bold about his belief in his son’s basketball abilities, he has drawn harsh criticism form Charles Barkley, and the two have entered something of a verbal battle in the media.
Among the outrageous statements concerning his sons future in the game of basketball was his prediction that his son would be better than two-time MVP Steph Curry.
Seeking to add intrigue to the constantly evolving LaVar Ball narrative, Curry was asked for comment.
As you would expect, he chose to take the high road.
After all, who has time for ludicrous claims like that?

Verbally, he was wholly non-committal to the issue. Curry avoided saying anything controversial, derogatory or inflammatory, which was certainly a wised decision.
However, it doesn’t take a body linguist to discern Curry’s true feelings on the subject.
With a smirk and staccato response, he doesn’t appear to regard the comments with too much validity.
LaVar Ball is losing in the court of public opinion. He might need to make another ludicrous statements soon, or else people might stop talking about him and pay attention to his son instead.
